"Liberals, who cannot understand or will not understand the interests of white America, instead resort to flinging accusations of racism," reads The American Conservative's blurb introducing David Paul Kuhn's article — The Racist Hubbub.

Patrick J. Buchanan reminds us that "neither audio nor video of this alleged incident has been produced, though TV cameras and voice recorders were everywhere on the Hill," and suggests that "exploiting these real, imaginary or hoked-up slurs to... smear opponents as racists and bigots... is the politics of desperation" — The Real Anti-Americans.
Daniel McCarthy of @TAC introduces us to a liberal who "doesn’t completely buy into the Left’s stereotype of the Tea Parties as racist" — Naomi Wolf: Tea Parties Fight Fascism.
